Construction of Balloons was released on the same Pathe bill with O, What a Beard. This early example of an "industrial" short subject takes the viewer within the walls of a Parisian balloon factory. The product produced herein ranges from party favors to excursion balloons (not unlike the one seen in Around the World in 80 Days). The factory-to-consumer construction process is offered in vivid detail: The sewing of the airbag, the weaving of nets, and the climactic ascension into the heavens. In all, Construction of Balloons was a satisfying subject, well received by 1909 moviegoers.
